For the Famiglia Mancini abundance is their middle name. So much so that my platter, a huge fettuccine with shrimps, that at first seemed expensive, ended up cheap, given that back in my own home, it multiplied into three more meals.
Here, taking a doggie bag home is nothing to be embarrassed about. It's part of the reason why families, tourists and celebrities have been coming to the cantina for 34 years to enjoy pasta with lots of sauces but no fuss.
If you decide to enjoy the antipasti table, watch out! Among an infinite amount of cheeses, squid and olives, you risk losing your appetite for the main course. My advice: have lunch at 5pm and avoid monster queues.
